The Credibility of Children's Testimony: Can Children Control the Accuracy of Their Memory Reports?
Koriat, Asher; Goldsmith, Morris; Schneider, Wolfgang; Nakash-Dura, Michal
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n4 p405-37 Aug 2001
Three experiments examined children's strategic regulation of memory accuracy. Found that younger (7 to 9 years) and older (10 to 12 years) children could enhance the accuracy of their testimony by screening out wrong answers under free-report conditions. Findings suggest a developmental trend in level of memory accuracy actually achieved. (Author/KB)
